Re: Gearlever assembly

Got the correct nylon part now assembled in the right order but seems impossible to fit, :x I can't get the gear lever down far enough so the top steel plate is flush with the housing. It all still won't fit together with just the nylon button and no spring, am I trying to fit these parts to a late ...

Gearlever assembly

I can't see how to assemble the gearlever in my ribbed gearbox as the spring and nylon bush were missing when I bought it, by looking at some of the diagrams it looks like it's assembled like this, but there is nothing holding it all together?., it did select the gears when assembled without the spr...

Re: No oil pressure

Well yes, in the past I might have done the same thing my self thinking....it will just be a few seconds before I get oil pressure up like when you give the car an oil and filter change....., I do tend to make assumptions about things which in this case would have been time and money wasted, thanks.

Re: No oil pressure

Thank God for that, oil light went out after the second try of cranking, pressure gauge now showing 60psi on the gauge after cranking for around ten seconds. did the trick by pouring oil down the oil filter pipe hole in the block and turning the engine over backwards, then filling the filter bowl as...

Re: No oil pressure

Re: No oil pressure

Thanks for that, I didn't know there was a seat for the valve, just assumed the seat was machined in the block.

Re: No oil pressure

It's the correct wire to the oil switch as I marked it when removing the engine, didn't touch the speedo end.

Re: No oil pressure

Yes I do have another switch I could try, good idea to try as you said to get oil to the pump via the the pipework and turning the engine backwards, thanks. :) :D

Re: No oil pressure

No the oil light doesn't go out, horrible feeling I just didn't prime the pump right on assembly.

Re: clutch lining

The car was a wreck when I bought it and in bits so I don't know what the clutch was like, If I knew how thick the linings are on a new AP plate and if there still for sale new, thanks all.

clutch lining

Would this be wise or not, i've got two good clutch covers and a new release bearing, I also have a couple of used clutch plates one of which is an AP with 0.042in or 1.05mm left on the lining, don't know what the thickness would be new. I will only be doing around two to three thousand miles a year...

Re: Rear door lip seal

That's good news thanks, yes that's right the touch class type rubber seal, did you put the glass in first without the frame or with it, I suspect you mean with the frame, great stuff thanks. :P

Rear door lip seal

I've fitted the new type lip seals on the front doors of my Minor, quite easy as the window will go down below the level of the door. However trying to fit the rear door lip seal is the opposite, I have taken the complete frame out and fitted a new felt seal on the inside and a lip seal on the outsi...

Re: Bent fork

Think I've made an assumption when I said it was bent, the 803 and 948 smooth case gearbox had an off centre fork looking at new one's on the B Motif site. It has been use on my car before with the 1098 gearbox by the former owner so I guess it's okay.

Bent fork

Did a search for "bent clutch fork" , someone said they can't bend they would snap, well I've got a bent one it's 3/4 of an inch off centre line from the pivot point :-? . Would it be okay heat it and put it in a vice or play safe and find another, Merry Christmas all.
